    Synonyms: Acanthosis bullosa, epidermolysis bullosa; epidermolysis bullosa simplex Weber-Cockayne, simplex aestivalis; hand-feet epidermolysis bullosa syndrome, hyperplastic epidermolysis bullosa, localized epidermolysis bullosa syndrome. Associated persons: Edward Alfred Cockayne Albert Touraine Frederick Parkes Weber Description: A form of epidermolysis bullosa. Consists of recurrent, noninflammatory bullous eruptions mainly on the feet, less prominently on the hands. Onset after mechanically induced trauma (blisters) in early childhood, but also in adult age, especially in warm season. Both sexes affected. Sharp pain when bullae rupture. Heals without residual scarring or other changes, such as thickening of the skin. They are occasionally associated with hyperhidrosis. Autosomal dominant or recessive inheritance. Warm weather, irritation, pressure, and moisture appear to be factors in the production of the syndrome. Probably a mildly pronounced form of the generalised Epidermolysis bullosa simplex Koebner.

    What is Cockayne syndrome?
    Cockayne syndrome is a rare disorder characterized by growth failure, impaired development of the nervous system, abnormal sensitivity to sunlight (photosensitivity), and premature aging. Hearing loss and eye abnormalities are other common features, but problems with any or all of the internal organs are possible. Cockayne syndrome can be divided into subtypes, which are distinguished by the severity and age of onset of symptoms. Classical, or type I, Cockayne syndrome is characterized by an onset of symptoms in early childhood (usually after the age of 1 year). Cockayne syndrome, type II (sometimes called COFS) is an early-onset form, with severe symptoms that are apparent at birth (congenital). A few cases of type III Cockayne syndrome, which has mild symptoms and onset in late childhood, have been reported. Some individuals have combined features of Cockayne syndrome and another photosensitivity disorder called xeroderma pigmentosum, which is characterized by a wide variety of skin changes, from mild freckling to skin cancer.

The ambition underlying the database is to provide up-to-date information on rare diseases and about the support and services these groups of people require.
    The disease/injury/diagnosis
    Cockayne Syndrome was named after Edward Alfred Cockayne (1880-1956), a dermatologist in England and a specialist in paediatric illnesses, particularly hereditary illnesses. Characteristic features in Cockayne Syndrome are: short stature, a particular appearance of premature ageing, balance difficulties (ataxia), visual problems (retinopathy and/or cataracts), progressive hearing loss, peripheral nerve damage, hypersensitivity to sunlight, and mental deficiency.

    What is Cockayne syndrome? Cockayne syndrome (Cockayne's syndrome; CS) is a rare genetic disease with autosomal recessive inheritance, meaning that the disease is inherited by an expected 1/4 of the children of apparently healthy parents. It is seen in about 1/100,000 live births, and affects all ethnic groups. Among the problems encountered in CS are: developmental delay, extremely short stature, poor weight gain, poor feeding, premature aging, extreme sunsitivity to sunlight and to other UV sources, cataracts (12 year life expectancy if present at birth), pigmentary retinopathy (retinitis pigmentosum) and blindness, "nerve" (sensorineural) deafness, severe tooth decay, and calcium deposits in the brain. CS patients tend to have faces with small chins, prominent and pointed noses, and ears that are unusually large for the head size. Their eyes tend to be sunken as one result of their abnormally low body fat, including under the skin on the face and elsewhere.

    Cockayne syndrome Cockayne syndrome is a rare genetic disorder characterized by a host of developmental problems including extremely short stature, premature aging, and extreme sensitivity to sunlight. The genetic defects responsible for this condition map to two genes, CSA and CSB , which code for proteins that are elongation factors. It is not yet known how the molecular defects in CSA and CSB give rise to the distinguishing clinical features of this disease. Back to Research Return to Home Page
